Tony Finau ties PGA Championship record with 10 birdies

Ian Poulter fired a three-under 67 despite only one practice day

That left Woods five strokes off the pace of USA compatriot Koepka, who birdied five of his first nine holes to make the turn on 13-under par, three shots ahead of Americans Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland with Australian Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, and American Kevin Kisner another stroke adrift.

The US Open champion, who had led by five shots, carded a four-under 66 to stay ahead of Australia's Adam Scott.

He sure didn't damage his chances.

Bubba Watson must have felt out of place during his second round at the PGA Championship.

Finau shot a 4-under 66 that bordered on manic. ". It was the craziest round I think he's ever seen". "A lot happened, but to post 10 birdies in a major championship is pretty special".

Rickie Fowler was unable to take full advantage of the ideal scoring conditions but still did enough to join Koepka at eight-under, mixing two birdies with a bogey over his eight remaining holes for a three-under 67.

His speedy 24-footer settled into the hole and two hollered words rose above the roar: "Rock Chalk!"

"So in eight holes, he had seven birdies", Furyk said. To be able to come back out this morning and play nicely was good.

Finau was among five players who accompanied Furyk to France this summer for a scouting trip at Le Golf Nacional, the host course of the September 28-30 Ryder Cup matches. The ball hung up in a bush and a marshal politely pointed it out to Spieth, who picked it up and then promptly chucked it into the water. "There were good signs that carried over to today, and hopefully tomorrow it gets better and better".

"To avoid making three bogeys in a row was very big", he said. With a front pin on the seventh hole, he went some 25 feet beyond the flag and holed the putt, and then got up-and-down from a bunker on par-5 eighth. However, Tiger found his form and ended the first round at even par.

A whopping 62 players are under par through two rounds, and the 36-hole cut of 140 is the lowest in PGA Championship history dating to the start of stroke play for the event in 1958.

Woods acknowledged the large St Louis crowds at Bellerive provided a huge source of inspiration during his round as tiredness led to a couple of mental lapses of concentration over the closing stages.

The 48-year-old Mickelson, who won the WGC-Mexico in the spring, played on his first U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1995 and has made every team since, including two years ago at Hazeltine, where the Americans won for just the third time in his 11 appearances. Major championship golf is amusing. It keeps trending toward the red numbers, meaning it could take being under par just to play the weekend.
